Such a great Pu-Erh tea here. Rich and velvety smooth. Not too overwhelming with a shorter infusion, but as the Red Blossom website says, with a longer steeping “the tea becomes richer in flavor with a distinct stone fruit aroma and remarkably smooth body.” I’ll have to remember that for next time.
Even with the shorter 2 minute steeping time, this tea is full bodied, but still on the light and subtle side. It doesn’t punch you in the face, rather it applies a deep massage all across the palate with a velvety smooth malty base and sweet, woodsy-ish overtones.
All the great prerequisites of a great, classic, solid Pu-Erh, nothing unnecessary.
My kind of tea.
